The Ghosts of Berlin: Confronting German History in the Urban Landscape
About The Ghosts of Berlin: Confronting German History in the Urban LandscapeIn this compelling work, Brian Ladd examines the ongoing conflicts radiating from the remarkable fusion of architecture, history, and national identity in Berlin. Ladd surveys the urban landscape, excavating its ruins, contemplating its buildings and memorials, and carefully deconstructing the public debates and political controversies emerging from its past.
"Written in a clear and elegant style, "The Ghosts of Berlin" is not just another colorless architectural history of the German capital. . . . Mr. Ladd's book is a superb guide to this process of urban self-definition, both past and present."--Katharina Thote, "Wall Street Journal"
"If a book can have the power to change a public debate, then "The Ghosts of Berlin" is such a book. Among the many new books about Berlin that I have read, Brian Ladd's is certainly the most impressive. . . . Ladd's approach also owes its success to the fact that he is a good storyteller. His history of Berlin's architectural successes and failures reads entertainingly like a detective novel."--Peter Schneider, "New Republic"
" Ladd's] well-written and well-illustrated book amounts to a brief history of the city as well as a guide to its landscape."--Anthony Grafton, "New York Review of Books"
